Vale Perc McGuigan

Hunter Valley wine industry veteran Perc McGuigan passed away recently at the ripe old age of 100.

The father of well-known winemakers Brian and Neil, McGuigan worked for Penfolds at Dalwood for much of his life before re-establishing the vineyard and winery as Wyndham Estate in the late 1960s. I’m sorry to say I never met Perc, but I recommend my colleague John Lewis’s excellent obituary for Fairfax Media.
